Where to go in the autumn in Georgia?
In 2 days it will be September and lots of people have a question – What to do in September? Where to go in September? Is it worth taking a vacation in September? Where to spend it? Well, the decision depends on the individual, but we would suggest you to visit Georgia. Autumn and especially September is different in Georgia, not only because children go back to school and others to university, but because wine making starts here. Vintage or wine
making processes start at the beginning of September in the eastern part of the country. The same process starts in October in the western part.

In Georgia the process is called Rtveli. Before it starts, people analyze the consistency of sugar and acidity in the grapes. Rtveli is not only an agricultural process. It is connected with fun and different festivities and this tradition dates back centuries.

Rtveli in Georgia is a special event, considered the fact that wine has special place in the Georgian culture

Lots of tourists attend Rtveli. Usually, natives make Mtsvadi or skewed pork and host friends and relatives. Usually, representatives of the government also attend the opening of Rtveli and sometimes take part as well.

In autumn it is worth visiting the sea in Georgia as well. Here it is called a Velvet Season, a period in September when it is not too hot like in midsummer and not too cold like in late autumn. There are still lots of people during this period in Georgia’s seaside resorts, in Batumi, Ureki and others.

We need to mention that in autumn the number of tourists decreases in Georgia and it gets cozier. Prices decrease as well and it gets easier to find accommodation in Tbilisi or other places.

Where to go in autumn in Georgia?

The first on the list should be the Kakheti region. One should attend Rtveli and participate in the process. In Kakheti visit Telavi and all the sightseeing there, also Alaverdi Catherdral. The Cathedral was built in the 11th century and is one of the most spectacular places in Georgia.
One should definitely visit Mtskheta, the old capital of Georgia.

Must visit places in Georgia are the mountain regions, be it in the western or in the eastern parts of the country. In Svaneti one can see medieval villages, unique Svanetian towers (tower-like houses) and beautiful nature. Svanetian cuisine is a must try as well.

Then go to Racha. This is one of the most beloved places among visitors not only Georgians. Shaori Lake is a must see place there.

Go to Kutaisi as well, an ancient city that has always kept a genuine Georgian appearance.
